Follow Cooper’s Lane for just over ½ mile. At a noticeable bend in the road nearby to the Air Force Memorial, you will see an entrance gate to a footpath on the right hand side of the path. It has an arrow shaped ‘Air Force Memorial’ sign on it and a National Trust sign with ‘Coopers Hill Woods’ written on it. (Be sure these signs are on the gate, because there are other similar gates on the path on Cooper’s Hill Lane which are not the right way 8) If you get to the Kingswood Hall of Residence, you have gone too far.

Go through the gate and keep walking.  After about two hundred yards there is a boardwalk just before the path splits.  Make sure you keep to the path that goes to the left. 

Just after the path splits, you should see a group of Redwood trees in a circle. There will be a fence on your left.

That saves you a walk up a steep hill and is ten mins from the camp. To get to the 71 Bus Stop, turn right out of the train station and walk 200 yards on the left hand side of the main road until you reach the bus stop. The bus journey time averages 7 minutes.
